CHICAGO (CBS) — In light of the terrible Sandy Hook shooting spree, Bulls forward Joakim Noah is holstering his signature “pistol popping” celebration for good.

Ryan Baker sat down with Noah at his home last week, the day before the massacre in Connecticut.

At that time, Noah said he didn’t think his “fake gun” routine on the court would encourage someone to commit a crime with a firearm.

He did say he was very concerned about inner-city gun violence here in Chicago.

Noah has been involved first-hand with the Peace Basketball Tournament on the South Side.
